You asked about some USB to VGA adapter cable but didn't supply the link. That said there has never been a "cable" that adapts USB to VGA without some circuitry but there are scammers that will sell under 10 dollar cables that don't work. Only the new or foolish buy these. Sorry if you feel slighted by me writing that.

I never could find your laptop model so if you want this many monitors the solutions are USB to video convertors which are mildly priced to some USB 3.x to Display Port which will only require one adapter for many displays. The downside is speed but for stock charting, excel and such will be fine.

Ask the laptop maker. In your posts you never shared the maker's site or link to what model you have so it's best to talk to the maker's support now.
