the title sums it up. I installed AVG Free on a clients pc and the next day his computer rebooted and said "no hard drive was found on this computer".

Is it possible installing AVG destroyed his HD or is it just bad timing?

It is probably just a coincidence. Is the drive detected in BIOS? You can pull the drive and attach to another computer to confirm if it is truly dead.
