Windows 7: wireless capability is turned off

windows 7 64 bit
wireless capability is turned off

hi and thanks in advance

ive got a toshiba satellite p755-s5320 windows 7 home premium 64 bit. laptop has ran fine for a while and then out of nowhere i cant use my wifi anymore. i dont know if someone deleted some drivers or other software maybe while i was at clue. normally i would boot up and connect to the internet automatically but now it says "not connected. no connections are available" btw all the other tech in the house is working and connecting fine. my xbox, phone,and other laptops all connect fine so i have internet i just cant connect to it from my toshiba. windows network diagnostics says the problem found is "Wireless capability is turned off". my fn keys i dont believe are working because they wont turn on my wifi switch and the hot key thats lit which is supposed to toggle my wifi switch isnt working either. if i touch the hotkey it just flashes slow one time but nothing happens. actually there for a little while when i would touch my wifi hotkey to try to turn on my wifi it would launch "windows media player" lol. i did a system restore and set my laptop to back before it messed up and that didnt fix it. im not very tech savy but i think somebody deleted some software maybe some drivers or somehow reassigned my keys on my keyboard and hot keys. but either way if im missing software i dont know how to check and i cant reinstall windows because i dont have the disc anymore. also i cant still connect to the internet if i plug the cable in its just my wifi thats messed up. i dont know how to turn my antenna on

is there a way i can check to see if ive got all my software that im supposed to from windows and toshiba because i dont know what programs i may be lacking or have turned off. thanks for ur time
