Either the SamAccountName or the computer name; doesn't really matter, since a computer's SamAccountName is its name with a trailing '$'.
If you have a column SamAccountName with said property:
Import-Csv -Path C:\Temp\DisableComputer.csv | ForEach-Object {Disable-ADAccount -Identity $_.SamAccountName}

Open in new window

If you have a column Name with just the host name:
Import-Csv -Path C:\Temp\DisableComputer.csv | ForEach-Object {Disable-ADAccount -Identity "$($_.Name)`$"}

Open in new window
