I'm thinking you mean complimentary solution as the particular solution to this differential equation is Y_P(t) = 0 because the differential equation is homogeneous (i.e. the "=0" part). At a quick glance of the differential equation it looks like the following page should help you get the complimentary solution. http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/Classes/DE/ComplexRoots.aspx

I think you can use LaPlace transform to solve this equation.

You can use Laplace transforms but a quick characteristic equation (as described in the page above) would probably be just as easy.
