It's not too surprising, in some cases...  

Often, a computer spends most of its time idling along, but an install
causes it to do a moderately heavy workload for a prolonged period, and
that can show up cooling faults, or be the straw that broke the camel's
back in components that were on the verge of failing.

And then there's computers that spend a year or two sitting on the
shelf, then the user opens them up and rummages around inside.
Subjecting it to physical stress (twisting the case, so cards walk out
of the motherboard, or hairline fractures occur), and to static shocks.
