When it's connected via HDMI, make sure that the device you're connected to via HDMI is set as the default sound device, then double click the device in the "Sound" window (not the Realtek audio manager software) and change it to 5.1 or whatever your sound system supports (these are Windows settings since you're bypassing the internal soundcard and drivers). Surround sound should work then.
