You are going to have to replace it....obviously. Here are some places that popped as having the supply you need. I have never used any of them personally.

Dell Optiplex GX110 will not come on when I press button but i hear clicking sound is there any way I can fix this problem?

A gx110 is pretty much uneconomically repairable. If the system is powering on, getting video but not booting, then the clicking is likely the hard drive. Of you are not getting any video, then post what the Power LED and the diag LEDs on the back of the tower indicate.

Data is not sent to the monitor

The first thing to do is to pay attention for "beep" when your press the power button (or the reset button) to turn the computer on or reboot it. The beeps that a PC makes tells you a lot about the state of your computer. I couldn't quote for you the exact beeps to listen for, but your manual for your motherboard may tell you. Different beep pattersn tell you what is wrong with a computer.

I think for many common motherboards it is something like 4 beeps to tell you the graphics card has failed. Don't quote me, but that is at least along the lines of how it works if not the exact number.

If you're getting no display after starting your computer make sure you hear one beep. Then, listen for other activity. If you're computer has a floppy drive, listen for the 'floppy seek'. Otherwise, listen for hard drive activity. If it sounds as though there's activity along those lines but still no signal/display on the monitor perhaps check the cable between your PC and the monitor. Never hurts to just make sure the monitor is turned on of course.

If your monitor is on, and the cables are connected securely I wold restart the computer again and check for the beeps. I would be certain to count them and check the manual. Your graphics card may have failed if you hear abnormal beeps (more than one as one is usually the healthy indicator). If you hear no beeps then the PC is not even getting in as far as testing it's devices and could quite possibly be a motherboard failure.

System does not start

The beeps are error codes and if you listen carfully you will hear a pattern of short and long beeps. If you can identify the pattern we can help you figure out whats going on....

Try pressing F2 or Del to get into bios and see if the system time and date are correct. if not the cmos disc shaped battery found on the motherboard may need replacing. You can also reset the bios by locating the 'JBAT1' terminal on the mobo and put the jumper cap from pins1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds, then back across pins 1-2 again, and reset time and date next time you boot up the pc. Although, i recon the continues beep noise can refer to a processor fault but trying the above is the cheaper first step to take, good Luck
