My laptop was working fine just last night and suddenly the wifi hasn't shown up at all. The only way I am able to use my laptop is if it's connected by Ethernet. It acts like my laptop has no wifi at all. Bluetooth is also doesn't work as well.

The laptop is a MSI GE60 2PE Apache Pro

sounds like the card got disabled, check your network adapter settings and/or device manager to see if its still listed. if so try hitting the fn key with a key that shows a radio tower/bar and see if that might kick it back on.

There's no key and it only shows that there's one driver on the network adapter settings. If I go on view and show hidden devices, many translucent drivers appear but "seem" to be up to date and working fine as well. Also there's no physical button that switches the wifi on or off.

The keyboard shows no key with the wifi signal.

It doesn't show anything on the network settings other than the Ethernet controller.
