    Not sure of the specific name or model, but it should be a standard slimline connector.

    It does not look like a slimline to me. Try removing those two screws. Under them you might be able to remove that connector to expose a standard slimline. I have seen a few laptops that have adapters like that one.

    There looks like there may be a couple screws you can't see in the ends of that connector too - something else to check...

    Just another reason to avoid buying Compaq, eh?
    My mind says Technic, but my body says Duplo.

    Like others said, it looks like a beefed up adapter for standard slimline IDE to me. Try taking out those screws and see what's there. ...as for what it's called, I have no clue.
