Is my motherboard dead? And if it is, can I still use the components on it using a different motherboard?

Basically, when I turn on my PC, there are 4 flashing red lights but no beeps. The display does NOT come on. The fans start to turn, but stop after 5 seconds of turning the PC on. I already got a much more powerful PC, but instead of throwing this one out, I thought I would at least try to fix it if possible. This whole thing happened when I tried to bump the PC up to 8GB RAM from 4GB.. Not sure if static from me went into the motherboard. . . Thanks. No flashing lights were mentioned in the article. Using the components of a dead motherboard were also not mentioned. I have tried: I have tried to take all the RAM out and put it back one by one to spot the faulty one.
