If the CPU fan is working and still encounters high temps. compared to prior usage or when bought new, a replacement or a cooling pad is applicable in some cases. Since you mentioned its already 2 years in his condition so other factors could also come from the heat issue.
. I have checked BIOS and I saw that there was no fan options.

The fan I replaced was dead (actually locked and would not hardly move) and while it was not a difficult job for me, I would not recommend it to someone who isn't comfortable pulling apart their laptop and putting it back together properly. It isn't just the fan I replaced but the heatsink and pipe as a single unit so there's a lot more that can go wrong with the repair than one where you just clip on a fan and plug it a power plug. There is cleaning and prep and applying thermal paste. You can just get the fan for cheaper but it is a lot more work and the problem might be the heatsink anyway.
Now that you know it is overheating and the fan isn't running as fast as it should, see what the manufacturer says about it. The part costs $50 to $75 so you can factor that into your decision. If they can do it for $125 it's a good deal.

Can you tell if the fan is running? Here is a free open source hardware monitor that might be able to detect your fan speed...
I fixed one of those a while back and the problem was a bad fan. Might just be a coincidence
Let us know if that program doesn't see the fan, there might be something else to try.
