You may need to set your CMOS boot priority to 'boot from CD drive". Put your boot disk in the drive and start the computer. Press 'delete' while booting up and you'll enter CMOS setup . Locate boot priority and set this to #1 boot from CD. Save and exit. Your computer will now seek and boot from the dive you set to.

Generally an indication that the Hard Drive isn't detected
Things to check, go to BIOS F2, reset defaults and reboot, see if the HDD is seen. If it is, the battery on the motherboard is likely dead and needs replacement (Watch battery at Walmart, 3 dollars)
If the HDD doesn't detect after resetting the BIOS, then most likely a Hard Drive failure

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.

My dell optiplex GX110 motherboard problem


I would suggest defaulting the bios, either by way of the cmos jumper, or by entering the bios at boot, selecting "load defaults" from the menu at the bottom of the screen, save and exit. If setting the defaults does not fix the onboard IDE then you have a hardware failure. They make IDE adaptors that plug into a PCI slot, that could get you back into operation, but I'm afraid if the IDE has gone on the mobo, what's next? I would be afraid something else will fail.
Maybe you'll get lucky with the defaults.
