    Low memory error - close ATKOSD2.EXE?

    I frequently get error messages telling me that memory is low, and advising me to close ATKOSD2.EXE. Does anyone know what this EXE is, whether I should kill it or remove it, and why it is causing the low memory problems?

    That is an ASUS on-screen display utility and probably should be kept. I don't feel that is where the actual problem is. Take a look at task manager and sort the processes my the amount of memory used to see what else is going on. Also make certain you have all the ASUS updates installed.

    As a great necromancer, I shall resurrect this thread, because it has not been answered.
    I was searching for a solution to this problem. There was no convenient solution around, so I decided to fix it myself and share the knowledge as a good person. :-)

    My laptop is ASUS K56 and it has an Ivy Bridge i7 CPU, 8 GB RAM and NVIDIA GT740M GPU, so it should be more than sufficient to display the 3D OSD. But it isn't. This implies bad coding from ASUS.

    The problem is that the 3D On-screen display (OSD) is a resource hog. Note that the 3D gives a big resource hit when your laptop is using a 5400RPM 2.5" mechanical HDD. The performance hit is negligible with SSD.

    Following my guide, You will replace the 3D OSD with 2D OSD, which will solve things the easy way. You will have an OSD for volume and display brightness setting information without lag and performance hit. The guide is fairly easy and only requires average computer knowledge.

    1) Go to your ASUS ATK package location. Default is C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\ATK Package\ATKOSD2
    2) backup ATKOSD2.exe (put it in an archive - zip or rar)
    3) delete ATKOSD2.exe (if in use, End Task in Task Manager)
    4) Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\ATK Package\ATK Hotkey
    5) copy ATKOSD.exe
    6) Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\ATK Package\ATKOSD2
    7) paste ATKOSD.exe
    8) rename ATKOSD.exe to ATKOSD2.exe
    9) Open ATKOSDMgr.exe from C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\ATK Package\ATKOSD2 and tick "Enable ASUS On-screen Display"
    10) Restart and your 3D OSD will be replaced with 2D OSD!
