Test it for what? At best, all you could do is make sure there were voltages present but without a schematic (which I am 100% sure you don't have), you would not know where to check or what to check for, or if any voltage found is correct. But beyond that, sticking highly conductive, sharp metal probes into the heart of a computer is dangerous as it would be very easy to short something out or damage the multilayered PCP.
