yeah it's just part of the process. Though you may want to go ahead and download the newest one first so you can install immediately after rebooting.

Curious.
From every indication that should be the correct driver.
Will the one they supply install?

You may have a problem here, apparently hp has no newer drivers and they've done something to that machine to prevent the updated nvidia ones from installing.
You can try installing the hp utility and see if they have a update to their graphics driver hidden in the system somewhere. Apparently you are one of those cases where only the driver released by the manufacturer will work.
It kind of sucks because nvidia releases updates regularly and most the manufacturers do not.

May I ask where to get the HP Utility? I googled it and it gave me no direct website
