syms x t s X F
F=laplace('diff(x(t),t,t)+7*diff(x(t),t)+10*x(t)=20',s);
F=subs(F,{'laplace(x(t),t,s)'},{X});
F=subs(F,{'x(0)','D(x)(0)'},{5,3});
X=solve(F,'X');
x=ilaplace(X);
pretty(x);
ezplot(x,[0 10]);

Hi,
The laplace function requires symbolic expression as an input. You can use str2sym() to convert string into symbolic equations.
