My comp has been having bsod almost every day on average. It will happen at random times, not always during the same activities. The error files have been different as well last ones i remember were dxgkrnl.sys and mfehidk.sys if anyone can point me in the right direction oh how i can diagnose and or fix these i would be very thankful. (thanks for all the walkthroughs oh how to obtain these files as well)

Make sure all Windows updates are installed.

Install the latest version of DirectX.
Download: DirectX End-User Runtime - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details

You have McAfee installed, is that correct? At least to test, uninstall it and install MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) instead.
Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

The following drivers need to be updated:

bcmwl6.sys      Wed Jul 08 10:44:47 2009
stwrt.sys       Fri Sep 14 01:29:43 2007
These drivers can be found by searching them in Google and then finding the associated software or driver. Finally, find the latest version of this driver or software and download and install it. Some of the drivers may also be found here (if the driver says 'Windows Update' simply make sure all Windows Updates are installed).

You should also update any other drivers you can think of including graphics, audio, chipset, SSD etc.
