I dont know as much about laptops but you should be able to get the 512MB. to replace it look on the bottom on the laptop there should be somewhere down there that you can open up the to put it in.

How can I increase memory of toshiba Satellite A105

A RAM expansion slot is located on the bottom of the laptop behind a small panel. Remove the panel to get access to the RAM slot/s. It may have two RAM slots, if it has only one the the 1st RAM slot will most likely be located under the keyboard.
If the laptop has two RAM slots on the bottom of the laptop and the 2nd one is empty then you can add anothe RAM module. Try to get the same make and model as the original to double your RAM..
If both slots are occupied then you need to replace the existing RAM with larger capacity RAM modules.

Memory Upgrade problem

You have the correct memory, however, did you replace memory in both available slots with same capacity/clockspeed sticks? The below is from the Spec sheet for your computer.

512MB(min)/2048MB (max), 2 memory slots using 256MB, 512MB, 1024MB or 2048MB PC4200 DDR2 533MHz SDRAM,
dualchannel support requires two memory modules of same capacity and clockspeed

Can't upgrade memory past 1gb when max is 2gb

I have the same issue with my laptop. I have not been able to get the laptop to accept 2gb of memory yet, but I did find something that works. If you put your 512mb memory that works in the laptop and then add a 1gb stick in the second slot it works. Or at least it did for me. It's better than nothing. I am still trying to figure out how to get it up to the 2gb max. Will add a solution if I figure it out.
