Reinstall operating system on my Sony W550i

Hi all experts,
I have this cell for about 2 years and it starts acting funky lately. I am thinking of reinstalling the OS. Does anyone know how?

ps I don't wanna take it back to the service center since they are gonna take years to repair.

My fone wont start


Try taking out the battery and leaving it out overnight then put back in and try to turn on again. If this doesn't help, then your phone's software needs to be flashed.
