SP1 / Drivers - Do I need to upgrade?

sorry if there is already a thread with a solution to the following problem.
I installed the first sp for vista as soon as it was officailly released (not the betas) in the hopes that it would solve several problems but it only made more. The first was that media player wouldn't function because of the drivers of my graphics card (i updated them to the sp1 compatible drivers and now it all works).
based on this i was wondering if i need to upgrade the drivers for all of the hardware in my acer laptop with those that are for sp1 as there have been several problems with programs not closing down properly, games not working because the sound card wasn't functioning, several network ports not functioning etc.
Below is a link to the acer website for my laptop if it helps.

'Would i be right in thinking that it will restore the original drivers for all of the hardware which was attached to the laptop?'
Correct - so make sure you have the drivers for any new hardware you have installed and the software for programs added since you bought the lap top.
