You need a standard sound card MIDI adapter cable, and the external MIDI driver enabled for your sound card.
To check if the driver is working, go to :

start -> settings -> control panel -> multimedia, and select MIDI.
If you see external MIDI listed (SB MIDI OUT, External MIDI, or similar) the driver is ok.
You have to select this external port as your MIDI device in Cubase or any other MIDI software.
Check your cable, MIDI OUT should be connected to the keyboard's MIDI IN and vice versa.
