Because you are terrible with mathematical notation I must guess what you might be wanting. Hopefully something in this will help you.

In[1]:= Solve[5==x^2*y^2,{x,y}]

Out[1]= {{x -> -(Sqrt[5]/y)}, {x -> Sqrt[5]/y}}

In[2]:= Solve[1==x^2*y^2,{x,y}]

Out[2]= {{x -> -y^(-1)}, {x -> y^(-1)}}

In[3]:= Solve[1==x^2*y^2,{x,y}]/.y->{3,5,7}

Out[3]= {{x -> {-1/3, -1/5, -1/7}}, {x -> {1/3, 1/5, 1/7}}}

If that does not provide what you want then perhaps if you gave a few clear examples of what you would like to give Mathematica and what you would want it to return to you.
