Take another look at the sentence:

Bryan had had enough of his sister's loud stereo and bad taste in music, so he went to her room, banged on the door, and teld Melissa that if she didn't reduce the volume, then he would return with his baseball bat and pound her boom box into little bits.

The third verb, teld, is the problem. The sentence requires the simple past. Told is the correctly spelled form.

Verb Simple Present Simple Past Past Participle
tell tell(s) told told

Had had, the verb you chose, is perfectly correct. Before you continue, review the rules for irregular verbs.
