Question about ASUS K8N-DL Motherboard
I've had two of these boards & both have suffered a freeze/lock up before POST rendering them useless.
Asus refuse to acknowledge there's a problem & both are out of warranty anyway (one was purchased abroad & the other off Ebay).
Both boards get to the Asus splash screen then freeze before it finishes POST. The code in the bottom corner always says 5B when it freezes if that's any help.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Sounds like a bios issue. Try resetting the bios, pg. 2-19 in user manual. After clearing the bios jumper, make sure you set it back to pins 1 & 2. If you still can not get into the bios main menu than head to Asus, click this link.
Since this is a new board & all Asus boards are warranted for three years I suggest you talk with an Asus tech. If you flash you're bios during the warranty period you may void the warranty. You can call Asus M-F, EST 8:00AM-5: PM.
1-812-282-2787. Not sure you have this number in you're manual. Chances are Asus will send you a new bios. Or you can buy a new bios for $5.00 not including S/H. From Asus online store. Click on this link. http://estore.asus.com/shop/
If I can be of more service, just post back & let me know how thing go.

Made sure everything is connected properly?
Reseat (remove and put back in) the components (Memory, Video card, HDD, cables)?
Run with only the essentials (CPU, Motherboard, video, RAM)?
Will the PC even power up?

I tried to use a Logitech Wingman Joystick...and windows would not recognize it even after loading the drivers...so I assumed the gameport would have to be enabled on my motherboard

Hey there, I would try clearing the CMOS. Pull the power cable off then find the clear CMOS pins and jump them out for a few seconds. You may have to reconfigure your bios but hopefully it will work for you. If not and you get no error beeps meaning its not post and you need to replace the board. Good luck.
