Windows Vista has removed DirectSound calls and unless the source you are listening to is actually encoded in 5.1 you won't get that.

You can check your audio settings if you have a "Surround Fill" option which will give you emulated surround in non 5.1 sound.

And to top it off everyone knows onboard audio is crap.

Invest in a decent sound card for $80
