Default 4 speaker setup on my PC

I have a stereo system with 4 speakers on it, I have it plugged into my PC.. but the problem is, the rear left and rear right speakers put out the exact same sound as the front ones do.. my sound card supports 5.1, but thats for the extra sound ports on the card.. i'm only using one that leads to my stereo... is there anyway I can force the rear speakers to actually use the rear signal from my PC? if not I will have to go out and buy a new sound system to get surround sound for my PC.. and i'd rather not do that..
