how to permanently change boot order?

HP Recommended
Pavilion 6640
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)
No recent changes that I'm aware of No new hardware I don't turn my computer off very often but the last 4 times I've done so upon restart the boot order has changed from hard drive to CD Rom so it won't boot of course. I restart it, pressing escape to go to boot menu and change the order to hard drive and save the changes and boot right up. But it reverts to cd rom on next start

Instead of going into the boot menu, go into the BIOS.  Make the changes in there, save the changes and then leave.  Saving in the Boot Menu is just for that boot cycle and not permanent.

Making the BIOS changes should make the changes stay.

And how do I go into the BIOS? And why has it changed?
