You listed this under PC Laptop? It's a Desktop? Have you ever done a CPU upgrade? You are limited to what will work with your machine, Mobo and other components. Your Mobo is, of course, AMD compatible, so if you read the specs: http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/desktop/0000/Acer/AspireX1200/AspireX1200sp2.shtml The AMD Athlon X2 dual-core is best option. Memory is a easy option to increase speed a bit. Remember, with a 32bit OS the most memory it can use is 3.80 GB's More or Less. With a 64bit OS use more. I have done many CPU upgrades, you may not get the Speed/ processing increase you expect. After all, the components work in conjunction with one another. Do your research on Socket type, Pins, Power requirments, etc., etc.Check, Verify, then re-Check and re-Verify.

If your laptop is overheating, it means that the Processor fan is not working. You can damage it further if you keep trying to us it. Although I must say, this is the first time I've heard of using frozen veggies to cool it down. I have a client that bought a portable Air conditioner to cool his laptop. I fixed it by replacing the fan.
The fact that the unit works while being cooled externally points directly to the fan.
Is the unit out of warranty?
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

You bios versions start at f.03,f.04,f.05, f.07, f.08,,,
The date and version that you posted does not match and bios version for your model.
The only reason you update a bios is if it falls under the problems
listed for the new bios to correct.
Say your lap came with f.05, the only reason you would update to f.07 is because you had a graphic error,that the new update fixed.
The link below is the page for your drivers, if you look at bios,it shows the newest,if you click on version,you will see all the ones
that where made.
You should double check to make sure that you have the right bios version.
