Depends on make and model of laptop.

Look at the 'F keys'. If you see one with icons of two screens on one of them (one black, one white), that may do it.

Press & hold down the 'Fn' key first then press the appropriate 'F' key.

Repeat to turn display back on.

There usually is a factory hot key that may or may not be known online. Email the company they might as a tech. They are very odd key arraignments Like Alt and three b's or such..
