    I tried connecting a second monitor that I know for sure works to my other monitor, but it just keeps saying “check video cable” and is not detected at all. I did all the driver updates and everything, but still no luck.

    You don't connect a monitor to another monitor, you connect it the computer.

    I just tried that with an hdmi cable but it still isn’t working. I am using 2 hdmi cables, one for each monitor

    Go to Display settings and see if it shows 2 monitors.
