You need to find the catalog file in use on the Desktop PC and use that. If you can't find that, you need to use a recent backup of that catalog file.

There is no sync step. Just open the catalog file from before you had the computer repaired. Then your collections should appear and if they were synced with the Adobe Lightroom cloud before the repair, they should still be synced. In fact, once you open this catalog, everything should appear as it was before. You might have to turn on the sync in LrC.

You do have recent backups of your catalog file, don't you? Use those.
