No 'line-in' socket on the Asrock k8upgrade-1689 m/b.
I want to feed in audio from record deck/tape player for which I would normally use the 'line-in' socket present on most sound cards. Please could you tell me if there is a way round this problem eg via microphone socket, which will avoid me having to purchase and fit a PCI sound card.

You do need an amp of some kind. On the back of the deck will be RCA sockets, in the red and white ones you plug a line cable to the audio in sockets of an amp or receiver. The other two sockets are record. They go to the audio out of the amp.
your receiver has (or should have) input and output connections,, your turntable needs to be hooked to the receiver,, then with the output cables that feed your cassette player you need to go, in to out and out to in ( receiver output to the input of the tape player, and out of the tape player to the in on the receiver, while playing a record if you hit record on the tape player it will record the record, depending on the receiver it will show you the meter readings for either the in or out,, they vary
I assume you want to record from tape to computer and monitor the recordings later. Simple three steps. 1) Connect the tape deck line out ( or labeled PLAY ) to any one of the inputs like Aux / Tuner using an 2RCA connector. 2) Connect Rec out from the SUV' to line input of your PC ( blue socket ) sound card. 3) To monitor your PC sound after recording on to Hard Disc , connect a cable between the PC sound out ( green socket ) and the the SUV Tape monitor IN ( sometimes labeled PLAY ) Now comes the tricky part.When you want to record on to your PC put the source switch on the SUV to where you have connected the Tape deck ( Aux / Tuner ). On the SUV keep the Tape Monitor switch to source ( released position ). After having done the recording to monitor and hear the Hard Disk playback turn on the Tape Monitor switch ( dipress it ). The pressing of the Tape switch on the SUV lets you toggle between the source and recording - In your case Tape deck and PC
Im not sure what DIN sockets you're trying to describe here, but quite often, you can record from a tape player to a pc by connecting an rca cable to an adaptor; rca to 1/8"(headphone pin) and then plugging that headphone pin in to the microphone input on your computer.
First off I assume you have the manual for you're 5700. if not a PDF copy is here http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000027911.pdf
Assuming you have a standalone tape deck that has phono inputs and outputs connection and recording recording should be easily achieved. Forget the coaxial unless of course your tape deck has digital outputs. Assuming it hasn't just connect the two output sockets from the tape dec which may be labelled REC out left and REC out right to the Line in (L) and Line (R) of the CD recorder. The physical setup is now complete. The increment level they refer to in the manual offers you a choice of 3 final decibel output levels in other words how loud it will be when it is finally recorded onto the disc.
the last paragraph on page 16 is relevant to the setup described above.
Page 15 of your manual is all you need to achieve tape transfer to CD. follow the steps below and choose ANALOG the source to be played is your tape deck so once the process has begun press the play button on your tape deck and you should get a decent recording. Leave everything else at their default settings until you get a better understanding of how to tweak your recordings. Personally I transfer audio tapes directly to my PC and Audio edit them until they are perfect but I've been doing this for years.
here's a snippet
To record from an external source: 1. Turn power ON. 2. Place a recordable audio disc (CD-R or CD-RW) label side up in TRAY II. 3. Close TRAY II. (When a blank disc is placed in TRAY II, the display will show BLANK.) 4. Press INPUT until the source you want to record is selected. DIGITAL OPTICAL: record a source connected to the DIGITAL IN (OPTICAL) terminal. DIGITAL COAXIAL: record a source connected to the DIGITAL IN (COAXIAL) terminal. ANALOG: record a source connected to the analog LINE IN jacks. 5. Select the desired mode of track division (track number assignment) by pressing the MANUAL/AUTO button (see the ADVANCED RECORDING section for more information). 6. Press the RECORD button. The unit enters record pause mode. The PAUSE [ ] icon and REC blink on the display. 7. Press the PLAY (ENTER) [ ] button of TRAY II to start recording. 8. Play the source to be recorded. • During digital recording, if the input signal stops for 5 seconds, recording will stop. • During analog recording, if the input signal stops for 20 seconds, recording will stop. • If the unit detects copy-prohibit signals during recording, CAN’T COPY appears on the display and recording is stopped. To stop recording: Press the STOP  button To temporarily pause recording: Press the PAUSE [ ] button. Remember that every time recording is paused or stopped, a new track number will be assigned.
Just use the play out connections on the back ot the deck, and connect them straight to the line in socket on the lappy. Use a RCA stereo to 3.5mm stereo jack connection, levels will be fine. Try audacity as a decent freeware recording program. Woks well, and you can use half decent plugins to tweak the audio. :)
