You can't really test the switch if it has more than one circuit on it.  Otherwise you can't really be sure what the state of each pin is supposed to be in all positions.  Some pins may be hot when the switch is off and how would you know that unless you have the schematics for the computer or another switch that you know is good to test and compare.

What switch?
Switches usually work or they don't. Do you have some unknown problem with this where you think it might be a switch?
