I have Photoshop CS5 extended. Since yesterday, pressing D the foreground color is white and the background black.

Pressing the switch icon or X the colors switch.

I need the default foreground color to be black and the background color white, as was the case before yesterday.

I tried to solve this by searching for relevant settings in the preferences, however without any success.

When working on a mask, the default is white foreground and black background. Do you have a mask highlighted int he Layer panel? –  Scott Mar 16 at 18:51

When working on a mask, the default is white foreground and black background.

Click a layer thumbnail rather than a mask to see the standard default colors.

If I understand you correctly, you just need to click the default colour button, the little one in the corner here:
