How did you find out all those were out-of-date?

I was going to use the Uniblue program mentioned on one of the links but I checked it out and it has a lot of negative reviews, and I know their registry cleaner is known to cause problems. I got another program called SlimDrivers. It found 7 drivers that needed updating and I was updating those but I went home for the night.
If it is a pre-built HP it may have a factory reset/restore partition. You can do a restore from it

Drivers dates were found in WinDBG (WinDeBugger). We dont recommend using a driver "Sweeper" applcation as they all depend on a database that may or may not be up to date.
