The parts list for your notebook indicates that it comes with a Broadcom BCM43142 802.11bgn 1x1 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 HMC combination WLAN adapter
The only suggestion I can offer would be to make sure you have installed the latest W8.1 wifi and bluetooth drivers for that model wifi adapter.
If that doesn't work, try removing and firmly reseating the wifi card.
Sometimes the contacts get oxidized and the wifi/bluetooth adapter loses the electrical contact with the slot.
Try to leave the antenna wire connected to facilitate a quicker reinstallation.
Below is the link to the service manual, where you can find the wifi card removal and replacement procedure.
