You should post correct Mathematica code (i.e. syntacticly correct) and
also comment on the not good solution, that would help people helping
you. Here is my attempt to mimic what you might have done:

In:= f1[a_, S_, q_, r_, t_, n_] :=
Sum[a[i]*S[i]*Exp[(r - q[i])*t], {i, 1, n}]
f2[a_, S_, q_, r_, s_, rho_, t_, n_] :=
Sum[a[i]*a[j]*S[i]*S[j]*
Exp[(2 r - q[i] - q[j] + rho[i, j]*s[i]*S[j])*t], {i, 1, n}, {j, 1,
n}]

g1[a_, S_, d_, sigma_, t_] :=
Sum[a[i]*S[i], {i, 1, n}]*Exp[(r - d - (sigma^2/2))*t]
g2[a_, S_, d_, sigma_, t_] := (Sum[a[i]*S[i], {i, 1, n}])^2*
Exp[(2 r - 2 d + (sigma^2))*t]

In:= Solve[{f1[a, S, q, r, t, n] == g1[a, S, d, sigma, t],
f2[a, S, q, r, s, rho, t, n] == g2[a, S, d, sigma, t]}, {d, sigma}]

During evaluation of In:= Solve::ifun: Inverse functions are being \
used by Solve, so some solutions may not be found; use Reduce for \
complete solution information. >>
