Have to have a second screen to get surround sound

I have a desktop gamer PC where I have connected a Samsung home theater to get surround sound. I connect to my 1440p monitor with DisplayPort and HDMI to the home theater. The problem is that I have to have a second screen connected to the home theater (right now an older flatscreen TV). Whenever I turn off or disconnect the second screen, I lose all sound. I only need the 1440p monitor, so it seems like a waste to have the second screen turned on when I don't watch it. Any ideas?

Thank you, but it seems to be more about how to fix no surround sound rather than the situation I have with no sound at all

A desktop computer is a personal computer designed for use at a single location due to its size and power requirements, usually by one person. The most common configuration has a case that houses the power supply, motherboard, disk storage (usually one or more hard disk drives and optical disc drives); a keyboard and mouse for input; and computer monitor and printer for output. The case may be oriented horizontally and placed atop a desk or vertically and placed underneath or beside a desk.
