    Each laptop is different.On mine if is :
      Fn F8
    to toggle LCD /CRT.
    What is the make and model of your laptop? Do you have the manual?

      By default it is off after POST.
      Look in your manual. You can not just hit F5, it has to be an extended function key. The regular keys are reserved for windows and programs. The extended function is done with a special key you have to press while you hit the function key. This is climacteric to laptop computers.
