Windows 7: drivers out-of-date?

drivers out-of-date?

Most BSODs are caused by drivers.

Generally, by out-of-date drivers.

This will not tell you if your drivers are out-of-date directly, but indirectly by telling you the date (plus more) of all installed drivers are on your computer.

| cmd.exe | do NOT hit Enter |
Rt-Clk on cmd.exe in the resulting list |
choose Run as Administrator

Enter following commands, each followed by hitting Enter:
DRIVERQUERY /V /FO CSV > DRIVERS.CSV
DRIVERS.CSV

If you do not have a program installed to view CSV format, then:
DRIVERQUERY /V /FO TABLE > DRIVERS.TXT
DRIVERS.TXT

when finished,
EXIT

With the CSV file you will want to select the entire table and AutoFormat to Column Width
and the sort Oldest to Newest based upon the Link Date
