I would recommend going with it at a service. The problem might be more compicated than you can handle and buying parts for it until you realise which one is broken doesn't seem like a smart thing to do.

If it can get to the BIOS, then it may be the HD, but in my experience smoke is usually associated with stuff other than the HD. Save the HD, get a new laptop and a docking bay for the HD (costs about $25) and you may be able to recover your data files.
