Is there a way to check all your drivers to see if they are up to date in Windows XP without having to go through every driver and check each one. I know that if a driver is missing it will show a yellow question mark is there any kind of indicator if one is out of date?

There are ways to check all the drivers.
Generally we do not recommend updating a driver unless it will fix a particular issue. It is found that sometimes the most up to date driver creates conflicts.

I saw that link when i was searching the internet earlier, ive got a program that checks them all called Driver Reviver, but its not very good. I was wondering in Windows itself if there was a way to check all of them at once?
