Is there any way which I could build a complete list of the specific drivers which are currently installed?

Not that easy, since you probably updated the drivers in time...
But you will be ok with the standard drivers to start and update them later.
Which Asus do you have..?
Btw, why do you want to reinstall the OS..??

you can always go to your device manager to see what hardware do not have driver (See Picture)

or you can go to your control panel and add hardware that connected to your computer. it will automatically search the hardware that do not have driver. then install driver and allow searching to the internet ;D

Asus V60 I think.

Can I really rely on Windows to accurately detect the hardware?

Depends on which version you have to install and which hardware you want it to install drivers for...
I ask again: Why don you want to reinstall your OS...??

Ask your mother as she will let you know exactly what is right as she knows how to use Device Manager.
