    Some onboard soundcards possibly yours doesn't upmix your audio. So for music you only have a 2 channel signal.. so no subwoofer. Now with a movie you need to make sure the software is setup properly for 5.1. Driver are some times to blame..etc. Onboards are usually just junk and a add-in soundcard is suggested.
