"Second" monitor turns off when closing laptop lid

There are two separate monitors, excluding the Laptop screen itself. When I close the laptop lid, the primary monitor stays on, and the secondary no longer gets a signal. I've even made it so it doesn't go to sleep when closing the lid, and it still shuts off. But when the laptop is open, both the monitors, and the laptop screen show up fine.

The display settings show a second device, but its completely grayed out. Unsure if it is showing the laptop screen even though its closed, or the actual second monitor. Either way, I can't do anything with it.

It was working fine Monday (Didn't use Tuesday), and now it doesn't.
