Network cable third pair not firing - can I switch pairs?

Is it true that computers only need three of the four pairs to transmit data? I have the third pair on a very long wire, goes through conduit, etc. Can I switch one of the pairs and make it work?

If the cable goes through conduit i would think that the termination on the ends of the cable are the problem - try re terminating both ends first.
