I recently acquired a Lenovo 515 Desktop. I tried to install 11.3 which
had downloaded a while back and accidentally blew away Windows 8.1,

In general terms, an old unsupported distribution might be usable as a
headless server on new hardware.. however as a desktop it is unlikely to
work properly because it most certainly does not have support for newish
video cards or other components.

if the network works, download a 13.1 ISO and burn it with k3b.

Everything seerms to work except for a very usable viewport.
I am downloading 13.1.
My concern is will the crappy resolution carry over to 13.1
This monitor worked very well with the supplid Windows 8.1
I will be pursuing material on the monitor after the download
