Sure, if you have some software running on your computer looking for messages from the arduino, it sees a message, and then goes & starts up Winamp or something.

Aww, so I assume there are no built in functions in the arduino code that can accomplish this without the computer doing any work?

You could look at a shield like this

or

but it would be the shield playing the music, not the PC.

Hello

try this :
Gobetwino        http://mikmo.dk/gobetwino.html

This software makes it possible to send Serial.println from the Arduino, starting up files and/or programs on your PC.
