Yes, in that situation you could use "solve", but "resolve" sounds better. Generally, when it comes to problems, people use "solve" when it's a problem that doesn't involve a disagreement with another person. For example, if I was locked out of my house because I didn't have my keys, I would work to find a way to solve the problem by finding a way to get into my house.
Usually the word "resolve" is used with problems that involve other people and disagreements. If there is a misunderstanding or a difference of opinion as far as how something should be done or whether or not something should be done, people work together to "resolve" the issue.
I hope that helps!

If this is really the way the title is written, it's very poor English.
