check computer account status in Active Directory

Hello,

I have a CSV file which contains list of decommissioned computer names (CN).  

Is it possible to list if they still have an computer account in Active Directory?

yes,
You can use Powershell to either output a list or do a lookup for a specific computer.
Use the Get-adcomputer powershell commandlet.
