A few possibilties on this:
1. Check to make sure both the floppy and CD drive do not have any media in it.
2. This is a used computer and its hard drive was erased to protect old info from being seen. If this is true, you will need to get an operating cd disk (ie. windows XP, windows vista, etc) and boot up from that drive. Follow the instructions from there.
3. Hard drive has failed and needs to be replaced.

press F2 to get into the dell bios and be sure the HDD is listed as first to boot, Then if restart turns the same error, press F10 and run the pre-boot system assesment check. if error 0141 appears, your HDD is failing and needs to be replaced
With your indulgence may I clear something, you installed a new 60Gb HDD to your Dell Latitude C610? If yes, then you would need to partition, format the new HDD and install an Operating System.
If on the other hand the 60Gb is the original HDD, then it could only mean that the HDD is defective or that its files have been corrupted and likewise would require an re-install of a clean, fresh OS. In some instances, a repair could be done but the same would need the use of a recovery CD or a Windows installer of your choice.
There would be no limit to the capacity that you can install. The only limitation would be the physical dimensions and the way it is electrically connected internally to the laptop.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
