Forget the screws as those are more for fine tuning once you are close to having it set correctly. Where the shift cable connects to the shifter on the bars you will typically find an adjustment knob (note that you may have the same type of adjustment knob where the cable meets the gear shift mechanism also) which the cable rides in. You will make much larger jumps in adjustment when using this method as opposed to using the screws located on the gear changing mechanism. Best of luck to you on the fix!!

Here is a link to a tech sheet for a Shimano Deore rear derailleur. It is not your exact one, but all Shimano derailleurs are more or less the same. Make sure you have thoroughly cleaned your drivetrain with a degreaser (like Simple Green) and a brush to clear all grease and debris before making adjustments. The second step is to shift into your highest gear (the smalles cog) and then release the cable in the derailleur, pull taut and retighten it. Check again to make sure you can not get into low gear, because it may have been a problem with cable tension, which you just fixed. If it still does not, then adjust the "L" setting on the derailleur so that the jockey wheel on the derailleur will move just ever so slightly past the last cog on the cassette when the shifter is fully engaged.
Hope this helps,
