First you check that you have set up Windows 7 to actually play surround: Rclick speaker icon -> playback devs -> select default dev -> properties -> advanced. Set to at least 5ch to make sure rear surround is enabled, usually your default should be 6 or 8 for surround (Top left picture).
Next, consult manual or helpfile for mainboard/soundcard to find exactly what outputs you have at the back and connect L+R surround (or L+R Back/rear surround) to her sound system's L+R Front or Stereo input. Add sub and center as they should be if you have this. Do not connect anything to stereo/front speakers out from your comp., this is identical to your your headset output.
Now, in options for Media Player, the default mapping for 7.1 looks like the top right picture. Input channels here means whatever channels the movie you are watching are using. For regular stereo out you need to set every configuration from 2 and up to 8 input channels exactly as the bottom right picture shows, if not she won't be able to hear sound if the movie has more than 2ch stereo (e.g. a DVD or file encoded with surround channels).
If your GF also have center/sub speakers you set the config for 2 inputs like before, 3 inputs the same, adding Front Center on 3 and finally 4-8 inputs like the bottom left picture.
PS!: You won't hear the result without reopening MP if you don't hold SHIFT while toggling/selecting channels.
Hope this helps
