Most music is only Stereo and won't output to all 5 channels unless you use Virtual Surround Sound. This will also make the music sound much worse.

If you have Realtek Audio (you probably do):
Go to the Control Panel and open Realtek HD Audio Manager. Under Speaker Configuration, select 5.1. Then check either "Speaker Fill" or "Virtual Surround" (it's underneath the image of the TV and speakers)

That'll accomplish what you want, and unlike what Cloud said, it doesn't make music sound "much worse". Quite the contrary, in fact.

Are you using a receiver? If so you more than likely can press a button on your remote and change it to 5.1 stereo or something like that. Makes all the music come out of every speaker at the same volume.

Play your music on Mono. Exact same sound coming from every speaker.

Then it's probably the files you're using.
