I have a MSI K8T SKT754 mother board with AMD Sempron 3100 processor which has failed, can I replace this with a AMD Athlon 3200 SKT754 which I have been given without having to do a repair re-installation of XP

Yes.
Only issue might be a BIOS flash to support the chip, may or may not be required, check at the MSI site.
