    "when i connect it my pc no sound comes out atal"

    No sound comes out of what? The computer? It won't, unless you have a sound card, sound module or sound samples (virtual instruments, etc.) set up in a track in Cubase to respond to the keyboard input, and play back through a sound card/module or to trigger a VST instrument running through an interface (digital to audio, connected to speakers/headphones, etc.)

    You also need to assign MIDI channels and parameters to match in both the Yamaha, and Cubase (and possibly settings in an interface). How is your MIDI connected? What interface do you have? What sound reproducing source are you using?

    List all equipment connected to the computer, and whether you are using an interface, or an add-on or onboard soundcard.

    It shouldn't be too difficult to figure out the problem, with enough information. We know you have the Yamaha and Cubase. We don't know about any interface. You need to read all the manuals of all equipment that is involved, and match things up. If you are simply trying to record audio from the 1/4" outputs of the Yamaha into Cubase, we need to know the interface because of that, too.

    What are you trying to get in, pass through and/or play out?

    Not enough info in your post to really help. I suspect you don't understand how the keyboard works with a computer.
    I'm sure you've done this already but you can certainly plug the "audio connectors" of the keyboard into any stereo or amp you have to play the sounds from the keyboard itself.
    The USB/MIDI connectors going to your computer are not audio....those are only data signals to trigger instrument sounds generated from some computer sound card or audio interface attached to your computer. You have to set that up in the computer.
    But maybe someone will come over and help you get it setup properly for you.
    Or read your manual in the MIDI section to understand what you need to do to use it with a computer.
    The sounds the keyboard makes (audio out) will not be the same sounds the computer will make (MIDI).
    Hope that helps
