Can't turn on WiFi on windows 10

Go to solution Solved by Kyletizboss,

Found out that I have a WiFi button on my keyboard that got pushed on accident... I fixed it myself. Sorry for wasting your time.

A few days ago I upgraded from windows 7 to 10. The WiFi was working fine until this morning. When I click turn WiFi on it flips right back to off. A Ethernet cable works. I'm sure many other people have run into this problem, but I'm not sure if anyone has found a fix for it besides downgrading to windows 7 or 8

Laptop: dell insiron 1564

I downloaded the drivers from the dell website. So that's not the problem.
