I have not read these all of the way through, but they appear to be what you are asking for.
If you have questions after reading both of them, post them back here or contact Sony support.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

An easy option would be to create a recovery disk.

There might be better options however if there is a separate problem with a different solution to resetting the system, i could probably help with that as well.
