Held Win+B key (other report the key combination being Fn+B)
plug in AC adaptor
Push the power button, with the two other buttons still down.
If the power led start, release the `Fn'and `B' button.
If you're lucky, you'll hear lots of beeps.... Your computer will reset itself and start in Windows!! can take 5 to 10 minutes so be patient.
Powered on, it did some beeping then I saw the light access of my flash drive, when the light stop I released win+b, it did some beeping then the cpu fan quick in (I knew then I was in good shape because it's the sound it make when the bios is flashing) then it stop and more beeping for 30 secs then it powered itself off .. done!
If the booting doesn't succeed, try a different timing on releasing the `Fn' and `B' button.
