The cmos battery is just under the keyboard. Release screw (1) of the keyboard is beside the ram slots underneath. So remove the ram cover first. Good luck!

Looks like the address of the memory with issues. Try a new RAM stick and run the test again.

Can you plug a monitor into the external Video connector, and do you see a display there? If you see a display on the external monitor, then the LCD is most likely bad.

Which test do you mean?

Try to restart the computer. Lenovo computers can be glitchy a lot, and restarting seems to help. If it's a touch screen, the computer can be "confused" on which mode of input you're using.

Is it problem accours in another monitor that pluged to your notebook? If no, the possibility is inverter failure. Try to replace the inverter to your service centre

There should be a function key to adjust the brightness at the top of your keyboard my laptop is F2 or F3 so at the bottom of the keyboard is a key label FN The Function key looks like a sun with an arrow if you are lucky to have it labelled.
If this does not fix problem you may have a faulty laptop . There is a circuit called an inverter in your laptop that converts DC to a higher voltage AC to run the fluro backlight behind your laptop's LCD screen. If this inverter goes faulty you could experience the symptoms you are seeing. This would require a replacement of the inverter circuit board in your laptop by a repair service centre.
