Seeking quadratic factors (using coercion into Series),
rs = Solve[(a^2 + a c + b)(a^2 + a e + d) == (a^4 + y^2 + 3) + O[a]^5,
{b, c, d, e}]
we simplify the result using the fact that y is real.
rs = Simplify[rs, Element[y, Reals]]
One obtains 6 solutions as three conjugate pairs. Here are the three
quadratic factorizations:
(a^2 + a c + b)(a^2 + a e + d) /. rs // Union
{
(a^2 - I Sqrt[2] a (3 + y^2)^(1/4) - Sqrt[3 + y^2])*
(a^2 + I Sqrt[2] a (3 + y^2)^(1/4) - Sqrt[3 + y^2]),
(a^2 - I Sqrt[3 + y^2]) (a^2 + I Sqrt[3 + y^2]),
(a^2 - Sqrt[2] a (3 + y^2)^(1/4) + Sqrt[3 + y^2])*
(a^2 + Sqrt[2] a (3 + y^2)^(1/4) + Sqrt[3 + y^2])
}
The last solution is the one you were looking for.

You should have y not y^2 here. Seek quadratic factors of the form
Solve[(y + b) (y + c) == (a^4 + y^2 + 3) + O[y]^3, {b, c}]
Cheers,
Paul
