To me it sounds like a problem with your power cable, perhaps a bad contact or broken cable? Did you check?

The power cable I've been using has been known to get hot after long usage, there are no other problems with it though. I used a similiar power cable which is also compatible with the laptop and fumes then started to emit as well.

I'm not testing anything, I was just asking for advice on the issue

Why are you even continuing to mess with a smoking laptop???
STOP using it at once lest borked power delivery (most likely) or backlight, as noted by good man riahc3, causes it to actually catch fire and perhaps battery to explode violently.
If it's under warranty - go to store and hope that they honor it. Otherwise - may open it and locate the cause and assess the damage.

Take to the tech dept at the store and have them take a look at the laptop and see what caused it... they will tell you what's going on..
You may need a new battery since the current battery may be bad/defective. Or some parts inside the laptop could be bad..
