    Thanks for your effort even if the solution suggested by you didn't work for me.

                    Today i fixed this issue by myself and now i am able to turn on the WIFI as well as bluetooth. Even if i have upgraded to windows 10, i went to the official site of acer ( acer drivers ), entered my product model and i chose the operating system windows 8.1 64-bit and then i downloaded the radio button which is available under 

    Category-OthersVendor- DritekDescription- Other Drivers (RF Button)

     and after installing this driver and restarting the system (restarts automatically after 30 seconds) i was able to fix this frustrating issue. Screenshot (27).png

    download this driver: (100% trustable website)

    http://www.station-drivers.com/index.php?option=com_remository&Itemid=352&func=startdown&id=2105&lang=en

     

    right click the wifi adapter, choose to uninstall and tick to uninstall software too, if asked.

    double click the downloaded file to unpack, then run setup.exe

    reboot and check if you can turn ON your wifi adapter
