Defaults are just a starting point (or fall back point if you screw up) & are generally not the best performance settings, even though there is an option to load "optimized defaults". It would be nice to know your system specs (motherboard, CPU, RAM, etc). If you don't wanna get into customized BIOS settings, simply click "load optimized defaults", then save & exit.

If you've loaded the optimized defaults (and hopefully reset date & time to correct values, if needed - usually they go back to manufacture date/time when battery dies) then you just need to save these settings (usually F10 key, but whatever it says on screen to save & exit).
