Not really because that isn't true surround sound. I have the same problem and can't find a fix anywhere.

Edit: Something that works better than speaker fill, but still not a 100% fix.

Open the Realtek audio manager and double click the jack for the rear speakers and make them front speakers. You want to do this with the centre speaker too if you have it.

You won't be getting true surround sound, just 2.1 copied to the other speakers but that doesn't matter unless you're watching an HD movie or something.

Note that speaker fill only emulates surround sound - like other solutions it is not true surround. The only way that this can be achieved is if the original source is encoded as surround sound (5.1, 7.1, etc).
