The DVI output on the PC only carries video, not sound. You will need to run another cable from the PC to your TV, there should be an audio input for the HDMI input.

Again to run audio from your PC to amp you can either use a optical cable if your PC and amp supports it which will give you proper 5.1 surround sound or run individial cables for each channel from your soundcard to the amp.
