To of these GX110 systems was given to us from a university. I am getting power to the mobo as well as the expansion card but the weird thing is that when I press the power button, the light keeps blinking on and off. I dis-assembled and re-assembled the system and besides the blinking, nothing happened so I thought it was a CMOS problem so I took the battery out and then put it back after a while and then the blinking stopped. I am new with these server boards so any assistance that is offered, I will be very thankfull. Thanks--- GiO.

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.
It seems like you have bad MOBO. I recently ordered all the stuff to build 2 new systems. Built the first one, no power, just like yours. Moved everything to the 2nd MOBO, everything worked. I did a RMA on the DOA MOBO. Got the new one and it fired right up. Sometimes you just get bad stuff.
If they've changed everything else, why didn't they replace the power supply? That's the next part to target for replacement, other than the on/off switch (or button) itself. With no system board beep codes it's apparent that the mobo isn't gettting any juice at all.
Also try disconnecting everything from the mobo but the power supply - including pulling add-on cards. One or more attached devices may be contributing to the problem. If it comes to life start adding things back until it fails - you've just identified the culprit.
Not every computer is the same, but many times you can disable your integrated graphics by going into the BIOS setup and disabling the onboard graphics. This is not necessary, even if you plan to upgrade.
when i read the system specs it says it only has PCI expansion slots. I regret to inform you your computer is very limited in its ability to expand, basically you will not be able to upgrade to render graphics for more 3d applications especially newer games. you need at least one AGP port or PCI Express. However if you absolutely want the best available for PCI you can purchase a RADEON 9000 PCI edition. It can handle most older 3d games or apps and it will work on your computer. All you have to do is plug it in to any PCI slot and install the software that come with the device, and voila.
Assuming you have already installed the AGP driver for the motherboard, you will have to start the pc in safe mode (F8) on boot up, to start in VGA mode only and see if the graphics are ok.
If it boots into VGA mode then the card itself is ok, but the card driver and agp motherboard driver, if not already; will need to be installed at this point because im assuming you were not able as you were getting the fault on screen.
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
