Surround sound outputs depend on the system being provided with the requisite number of channels information, such as that from suitably encoded films on DVDs.

Otherwise any variation on 2.1 is artificially created and often sounds worse than just using the correct number of channels for the particular input.

Interestingly enough Windows XP doesn't provide a 2.1 option, only two desktop speakers, amongst the choice available.
