    Most modern motherboards have a jumper installed to allow a reset to default of the CMOS settings. This comes in extremely handy when you overclock the board too far and it just sits there with a black screen. The position of this jumper is usually in the vicinity of the onboard battery, but differs from board to board. Your best bet would be to check out your documentation and see exactly where it is located on your particular mainboard. It will also have pictures showing you how to reset it.

    Oh... there is no "cable" involved. :)
