Lenovo ThinkStation P310 desktop tower, keyboard, and mouse
Lenovo ThinkVision T2424pA
After connecting everything according to the instructions of both the tower and the monitor, double & triple checking that all parts are connected properly, here's what happened...
Tower seems to boot up fine, disc drive in tower opens and closes properly, keyboard and mouse both detected. However...
Monitor seems stuck at power saving mode. Two things are connected:
blue VGA connector with pins on both sides is connected to VGA connector in back of tower.
When the on/off button on the screen is pressed, the light turns green, the screen shows the Lenovo logo, then the light turns orange-ish and message 'power saving mode' is displayed as if the tower is not working.
I have tested the monitor on my Toshiba Satellite laptop and even though the same thing happened at first, after 3-4 tries the monitor finally worked. I used an HDMI cable to do that as there is no VGA port on the laptop. I didn't need to disconnect and reconnect any cables, just turning the screen on and off again and again till it worked.
There is no HDMI port on the back of the tower unfortunately so I couldn't test that even if I wanted. I really hope there is an easy fix for this as I need to get it working asap...
Thanks a lot

Lenovo is not hosting previous versions on their Driver Pages, and instead I found older Graphics Drivers for both the 370 and X380 respectively inside the hosted SCCM Driver Package for both models.
