Like the title says, my pc won't boot unless I take out the CMOS battery and discharge it (by holding down the power button for 15 seconds) between every boot. Since I can get into windows I know all my components are fine, but I don't know why it will only work when I do this between reboots. Anyone seen this problem before?

Pulling out the CMOS battery resets your BIOS settings. So it really sounds like you need to update your BIOS. Or you have something installed on your computer that is attempting to auto-update your BIOS every time widows boots up.

Something to check anyway. Hope you get this resolved! It sounds super frustrating.
