Headlight Help!!!

So I just replaced my headlights with some Silverstars, and like a moron I thought I had to adjust them. There are 3 adjusting screws for each headlight, 2 on one side which appear to be up and down/side to side, and one on the other side which appears to adjust up and down as well. I started adjusting them and now I got everything so out of whack I can't get the chrome bezel on because there is so much of a gap on one side or the other. Just when I think I got it adjusted right, I try to put the bezel on but it wont fit, plus it looks like the light is ****ed really bad in the socket. Does anyone know the trick to this? It looks like there are 2 screws that adjust the same direction, but do I have to adjust both of them a little at a time or just one? I need to totally start from scratch it seems but I have no idea what to do here.....

Not again...
There's only 2 adjustment screws. They are the ones behind the 2 notches in the bezel.
That 3rd one you messed with isn't an adjustment screw.

and you weren't a moron, you always need to re aim headlights when you replace one, and almost always even when you only replace an H4 bulb.
