From the description the processor ic has overheated probably due to the cooling fan failing, this a serious motherboard failure and unless you have extended warranty, you are further ahead replacing the netbook.
1. It could be due to lack of good airflow from the cooling coil because your air filter needs to be replaced.
2. You could just have an old compressor that needs to be replaced.
3. You could have a refigerant (freon) leak in your system, causing it to freeze.
The first issue can be fixed by yourself, when you replace your air filter, make sure you take note of the dimensions of the filter so you can buy the correct size. There will be an indicator as to which direction the filter should be facing on the side of the filter itself after you purchase it from your local home improvement store. If you replace your filter and the problem persists, you should call a liscenced professional to come out and assess the issue since the chemicals from the replacement of the compressor and fixing the refigerant leak can be harmful.
Yes it could, check the motherboard for bulging/leaking capacitors (they're the round things that stick up), if you find any then that's probably your problem. They're easily replaced, but check that there's nothing burnt as that would make it more complicated and costly.
There's plenty of info on replacing bad caps on this site as well as many others.
Here's a few links:
