Derailleurs are pretty complicated in their design but from a user standpoint this makes adjusting them fairly straightforward... taught a maintenance class last night and think everyone walked away with good understanding on how to adjust their derailleurs which were all indexed and these folks were all newbs.

For the OP it sounds like your limit screws are out of adjustment and in adjusting these you will also have to adjust the cable tension and check the position of the derailleur as well.
