If its the string height you want to change its not the screws in the picture, its the little tiny hex bolts that are in the saddles, changing the screw you are indicating by (1) will restrict the bridge from rocking when you use the trem. (2) will adjust the intonation on the string (3) bolts the block under the bridge that the strings go through to the bridge plate itself

I`ve marked them in your pic smile.gif

Sounds like you may have lowered some too much maybe? and getting some fret buzz, just raise them in tiny increments till you dont get it anymore smile.gif

IT is a trial and error process, and if you cannot lower your action without making a fret buzz, than guitar is not properly setuped. For further setup of the guitar (of course if you don't adjust it to you liking) I suggest taking it to guitar repair expert.
