The update did not complete successfully (259)

HP Pavilion p6210y  running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.     I need to reinstall the graphics driver for a nVidia 9100 integrated graphic.

 

Every attempt to run the HP update sp43166 that HP provides on the webpage for the p6210y did not work and ended with the 259 error.  

 

I also attempted the suggestions from these posts but they did not work

Again, I need to be able to run the graphics driver update that HP provides for this computer on their website without running into this error.  What do I need to do short of throwing the machine out the window?  *kidding*
