Double check that your needle is the proper one for your machine, and that it is in properly. It sounds like it is not picking up the thread properly. Tension problems usually have more to do with threading, thread or needle problems than with bobbin problems. Also check your bobbin is unwinding in the proper direction for your machine. Most machines unwind the bobbin thread, turning clockwise. Set your screw back to the factory settings, and give the machine a good cleaning as well. Lint can cause this to happen as well, if it builds up enough to interfere with the needle and the hook action. Double check that your upper thread is threaded properly as well. I suspect your needle is in backwards however.

If you had just changed the thread, try re-threading or just raise the presser foot (this opens the tension) and pull about 6 " of thread through the needle.
Foot down closes the tension to the setting you have selected.
If this does not work, the machine will need to go into the shop.
Berninas hold their value better than any other brand, so be sure to go to an authorized Bernina dealer for service and repairs.

Is you question about how to 'wind thread in a bobbin'? If so download this manual http://www.berninausa.com/webautor-data/486/BERNINA_707_717_manual.pdf (al though the pictures are not clear, the first image shows each part with numbers)
Its just above the machine at the right side. See the first image in the manual numbering each parts, its the 14th part 'Bobbin Winder Spindle'.
