Computers and Chemical Fumes?

Someone has posed this question:  
     
“Could the exposure to chemical fumes damage computer equipment put into typical chemistry labs”
 
I know this may seem a bit out of context, but I assume there would be some kind of Hardware expert who might have some information.  Any information would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Depending on what kind of fumes are released they may cause damage to the electronics,

i.e. fumes may cause static in the computer

It is best if you keep it in a well ventilated place

If the fumes are corrosive and/or conductive it could cause damage.

If the chemical reacts and expose like you said in question, that is FAILED in safety working environment, and that lab must be shutdown. I would not worry about equipment on this case, the people will be affected no matter you wear cleanroom protection or not.
