The built in speakers in your laptop would be incapable of playing surround sound. True surround sound (at least 5.1) require a front left and right speaker, rear left and right, centre and subwoofer. This can be achieved through cable types such as optical, or through individual jacks on the back of motherboards.
As your laptop only has a stereo 3.5mm output (most likely) then it is only capable of stereo sound (either 2.0 or 2.1). You would have to invest in a sound card with an optical output/individual surround outputs to output TRUE surround sound.
However, if you plugged in a speaker set, such as the logitech 5.1 system, then it would work perfectly fine.
