You need to provide information about your computer, this includes is it a laptop or desktop, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if it is provide the model name or series number (not serial) providing these details will enable others to better assist you.
Do you get any on screen messages at all?
When the computer does complete POST are the RTC time and date on the task bar correct?

In general, computers do not require computers operating normally to press a key to complete the POST sequence. The most common reason for a computer not completing POST and requiring a key press is usually a fan error or HDD SMART error.
Is there any message before or after the message to press F1 to continue?

I know you say that the date and time are correct, but I would change the battery anyways. It is an inexpensive item to purchase and try.
