    Cum landed on keyboard and dribbled down?

    Maybe pull the keys off and clean

    If its a line like that I'd be inclined to say its a track on the PCB for the keyboard thats perhaps gone high resitance. What model laptop is it? Replacement keyboards are fairly cheap these days and are usually only 4 or 5 screws to swap out.

    Easy to replace usually. Use YouTube if unsure. Usually couple screws and pop up just be careful of the ribbon cable and the flimsy suicide clips
