What is the difference between qué and que? Is there one?

This has been bugging me for awhile, I have tried to get a straight answer in many different places, and so far, no luck.  I know how important accents are for so many words, if you miss the accent,  you wind up with an entirely different word.

This does not seem to apply to "Qué."  Can anyone give me a clue when to use the accent and when not to, and what is the difference?  Is there one, is there a grammar rule that so far has eluded me?
Thanks in advance for any help.
