yes battery is Cr2032 and from your description the battery is dead. To remove the armour remove the 4 screws in the middle that cover the fan and remove fan cover. Turn the board upside down and remove the 8 small screws usually have white circles round them. cover should then come off and you can replace battery.
 
Hi,

Please do try these troubleshooting steps that may help in resolving that issue.
- Disconnected other devices from your PC (printers, phones, etc) just leave your keyboard and mouse then try if you'll be able to load to the desktop.
- If these doesn't work load BIOS then press F9 to set it to default then see if it would load normally.
- Next is to remove the HDD from your PC boot it up and see if it would get pass that same screen that is loads to because if it does it may be a faulty HDD.
- If it gets pass that screen that it get's stuck to, shut it down once again and reconnect the HDD and see if it will load normally or not.

Hi Mate

My HDD was faulty so thats being returned but Bios is still being promted for my SSD. If I restart it goes straight to windows but if I power off and on it will promt me with bios again.

I have messed around in Bios the SSD is my single boot now and ive disabled F1 error and saved. When it promts me to go back into Bios again after a full power down all the settings are defaulted back again :/. Im really struggling for a fix now, I reverted back to windows 7 and it does the same thing now so ive readded Windows 10 again.

My Windows 10 is also forgetting the time/date which might also be part of this problem.

Sounds like dead bios battery, (usually standard CR2032) causing bios to be reset (equivalent to forgetting bios reset jumper) at each power off.
Since I don't have the board myself, I cannot really help with removing the thermal armor it supposedly comes with, that covers the battery but... I'm pretty sure that the manual and google would be your friends there.
