Can't connect to an external monitor

\015 My laptop has a broken screen (blank) and I have been using it with an external monitor. I moved the laptop and unpluged it from the monitor. I connected it back again using the same cable and using the F5 botton but it does not do the connection. Because I cant see the sreen I do not know what is going wrong. I have turn it off and on several time with and without the monitor but I can't get the connection.\015
