Default bypass ON/OFF switch

Hi friends.
The PSU which was in my PC is malfunctoning.
The PC was suddenly switching off for no reason.
Now I noticed that the switch on the back side was kinda loose and when I flip the switch to ON and OFF I get a sparkle/lightning buzz which I suppose is not okay.
Is there a way and how to bypass it if the switch is making PSU to shut off?

I have tested the switch with diode mode seems okay...but dunno if could be the problem under load.
Anyway I will purchase new switch and solder back and report..
I hope it is a switch.
Why does it sparkle?
