Hi
If you have realtek audio manager on your PC you can select 5.1 surround on the speaker configuration screen then uncheck the sub,centre,and rear boxes under optional speakers and select full range speakers this will give you a good approximation to a 5.1 system especially if the HiFi speakers are a good size and quality.

You can't get surround sound from a receiver (your hifi) that only supports stereo (has connectors for only two speakers). Each connection for a speaker is called a channel. Your system has 2 channels. Most home theater receivers have at minimum 5.1 channels. 5 channels for regular speakers and the .1 is for the subwoofer.

The majority of modern computers use Realtek for the onboard audio,check the bottom right of your task bar,you will be able to download it if your motherboard supports it.
The HiFi you are using will only enable you to have the front two speakers,you will need another amplifier or powered computer speakers for the rear two.
