It doesn't help that you likely have a pirated install. That can cause issues. You should talk to your brother and ask how he got it. It's very rare to see Windows Ultimate in consumer PCs and even legit copies don't allow you to just share with others.

In the case that this is a pirated install, the first thing to do is to wipe the hard drive and install a full, fresh copy of a legal Windows edition. Then re-evaluate your situation.

As to the parts, you can use tools like Speccy, but things like power supply, you need to either ask your brother or open up the PC and look at it.
