Default Computer issue

I have a 2001 PT Cruiser with a check engine light on. I need to get a new york state inspection and I have been told by two shops that the computer is shot and needs to be replaced (thats the only way to get the light out).

I have also been told that I need to get the numbers off the computer,
locate a replacement and have someone program the computer?

Can someone please tell me where the computer is located and where I would find the numbers, so I can make some calls and try and locate another
from a junkyard.

Also, is it possible to fix the computer that I have (cost effective)?
Might it just need to be reprogramed?

The car seems to be running ok, but I need to get an inspection next month.
Any answers would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
