PEBCAK is a term often used by individuals in the computer support or general computer industry to describe an error that is caused by user error. It stands for “Problem Exists Between Chair and Keyboard.” This means that the problem they are referring to is caused by the user and it is not an issue with the computer itself or an external issue.

There is an occasional disagreement on whether it is spelled PEBCAK or PEBKAC.
