Windows 7: outdated drivers/bsod

outdated drivers/bsod

New here. I'm wondering if old drivers can cause a bsod. I ran one of those "check your pc" programs and I have a bunch of old drivers(hdd, video, WiFi, etc) bit anytime I check for driver updates it says I have the best driver right now. I get bsods once a week or every other. What can I do? Do not have a minidump on hand at the moment as typing from windows phone.

edit: added image of drivers said to be outdated. will add minidump when crashes

Welcome to the forum.... not sure what to think of your name though

yes, outdated drivers can cause BSOD's. However, your post and info doesn't tell us enough for that. Example: if your system was running fine, for a longer period of time... and you changed no drivers... then chances are it might be something different, unless you use some specific piece of HW for the first time...

Please post full info as instructed in
