Id10T error is a common term used by the IT helpdesk to describe an error on a users confuser.
After repeatedly attempting to help the user fix a confuser glitch, the IT personnel will give up in frustration and claim the error is an “Id 10 T” error and the user needs to contact Microsoft support.

computer user: I can't get my computer to work. The coofe cup holder is broken.
Helpdesk: Coffee cup holder?
Computer user: Yeah, my new computer has a coffe cup holder. You press a button and a tray comes out to place a coffe cup on.
Helpdesk (on mute and to a coworker): Hey Phil, I have a an ID-10T error on the phone. To computer user: Ma'am, That is not a coffee cup holder, that is your cd-rom.
Computer user: Oh. Are you sure?

Computer repair term. Whenever a computer user does something idiotic and causes a major and sometimes unrepairable problem.
The Idiot: I spilt a glass of water on my computer can you repair it?

The Repair Shop: Sounds like a "I.D.10-T Error", not sure we can repair your computer, but let us have a look.

Synonym for PEBKAC, e.g. "The user is being an idiot". Tech-support people passing a problem report to someone higher up the food chain (and presumably better equipped to deal with idiots) may ask the user to convey that there seems to be an I-D-ten-T error. Users never twig.
a user clime that the computer refuse to shutdown .... and there is a message box display "do you want to save changes made to untitled document <yes> <no> "
