You would have to have access to the computer in order to deauthorize.
Otherwise, just wait until you have reached the limit of 5 and then deauthorize all.

If you still have the computer in your possession then no problem. Simply turn it on, launch iTunes. Under the "store" menu simply select "Deauthorize this computer".
If you no longer have the computer - slghtly more difficult. And please note that you can only use the Deauthorize All command once a year
Suggest you refer to the iTunes Help section which says the following
- To authorize a computer to play iTunes Store purchases, choose Store > Authorize Computer.
- To deauthorize a computer, choose Store > Deauthorize Computer.
- To deauthorize a computer to play spoken programs purchased from the Audible website, choose Advanced > Deauthorize Audible Account.
- If you forgot to deauthorize a computer you no longer own, and you have five authorized computers, you can deauthorize all your authorized computers at once. You can use this method once a year.Choose Store > View My Account, and click Deauthorize All. If you don’t see this option, it’s because you don’t have five authorized computers.
Although strangely enough I have four computers authorized and I can see the Deauthorize All option.
