Is There a Way I Can Get 5.1 Support from My Laptop via HDMI to My TV?

I have an HP Pavilion TS 15" laptop, that's all Windows gives me for the model #...

I have an LG BH6720S home theater system (I heard those aren't very popular in this community, especially when compared to actual receivers, etc.)

I also have a Samsung UN50H5203AFXZA Smart TV.

As of right now, I have the laptop hooked up to the TV with an HDMI cable, with audio going from the TV to the receiver via an optical cable. I don't have an optical output on my laptop, nor do I have an external sound card.

Windows 10 is only allowing me to choose stereo sound on my TV as the audio out, so I'm hoping I can get 5.1 somehow without buying anything else. Thanks!

Ahh okay, thanks. I think I'm just going to wait until I fix my main PC, I'm not sure if I'll need a sound card so I'll just wait for that.
