Ok I have a compaq laptop with a Toshiba hard drive. MK8034GSX...

I bought a 2.5 hard drive adaptor, but the hard drive does not have pins like the adapter uses. Instead it uses metal slides that connect the laptop hard-drive. So where can I buy a converter to connect to my desktop for this style hard drive?

The hard drive is most likely held in a hard drive cage. Remove the screws holding it in the cage and remove the drive. Then you should be able to connect to it via a 2.5" ide or sata adapter.
