    This would only depend on
    What your using to make the changes
    what changes were made.
    How long ago you saved it.
    how it was dsaved.

    If using Sharepoint Designer (Or other Web Editing App) you could try Edit Undo.
    If this option is not available.....

    Hopefully before you saved it you renamed the Default.aspx to BAKDefault.aspx before you made any changes
    If you did, just discard your current default.aspx and go back to the old one

    If you did nto make a backup copy of the default.aspx before making changes you might be able to use System Recovery on the Sharepoint Server to go back to a previous day/time

    If this is not available, if you have a backup solution in place you may be able to restore the Default.aspx page from the backup and replace the one you modified.

    If you dont have any Backup Solutions in place
    Your really out of luck

    You will have to try and fix what you broke and chalk it up to experience

    Otherwise, you can always remove and reinstall sharepoint from scratch and rebuild the intranet all over agian
