    It sounds like you want to update all old drivers from a list of computers (a text file) and identify devices with no drivers that are not installed properly (they have a "bang" next to them in device manger).  If I understand your question correctly, tell me if you have any experience using vbscript and/or writing batch files.  Do you have some experience using Group Policy?

    It seems to me you'd want to Google the key words "enumerate device drivers vbscript" as a start.  When I did this, I came up with this information from the web.

    "The Signature Verification Utility, Sigverif.exe, will show you all drivers and system files that have not been digitally signed. You can save the output to a file, and choose which types of files to scan via the Advanced properties in the program.
    Another tool that exists in Windows 2000 for the purpose of verifying driver activities is the Driver Verifier tool, Verifier.exe. This tool can be used to verify that a driver is functioning correctly and without errors."
