PEBCAK

PEBCAK, or Problem Exists Between Chair And Keyboard, is a commonly used acronym within the tech support community to indicate that the reported problem with the system is not a failure of any software or hardware component, but is instead a wetware failure–the user of the computer is the source of the problem.

Variations on the theme include PICNIC (Problem In Chair, Not In Computer) and EBCAK (Error Between Chair And Keyboard).
