Flexing that (even for grins...) is not a good idea at all and could cause other issues.
If it works when flexing like that it does indicate a possible unsoldered chip.
Can I suggest you remove the wifi card, and CD Drive from the board and see if that makes any difference.
Also go into the bios and press F9 to reset it to default settings in case there's something there.
A possible issue is that the Southbridge has come unsoldered. It controls just about everything on the thinkpad and I guess that it's possible it could cause such an issue.
Try pressing down on the palmrest just to one side of the trackpad (opposite to flexing!) and see it if works.
Even better is to remove the palmrest and the wifi card underneath (under the trackpad) and to press on the top of the SB which is under the card.
Also is it a new Windows install, or did it suddenly happen one day?
I realise it's a bit of a shot in the dark but is worth a check.
