Default Please help - looking for laptop drivers

I've been passed an old laptop to get running, and I've formatted it and it's working fine, but there is no sound. The laptop is a Hi-Grade 8615 GTK. I've never even heard of "Hi-Grade" before, is it a badge for a better known brand or manufacturer? The OS is Windows XP, SP2 (I didn't want to put VIsta/7/8 in it as the laptop has only 1GB of RAM), and according to Everest the PCI/PnP Audio is

"Realtek ALC260 @ VIA VT8237A High Definition Audio Controller PCI"

It's really the sound driver I'm after, as everything else seems OK with the default XP installation, but if possible I'd like to find all of the drivers.

Thanks for any help.

Thanks mate, but I've just found the drivers at

ftp://ftp.higrade.com/2010

and now the laptop's working fine (and I'll put the drivers on CD in case I ever nee them again, of course).
