Working Precison


I'm working on Mathematica 2.2.1 for Microsoft Windows.
I'm looking for a numerical values of

FindRoot[fn(x,y)==0,gn(x,y)==0,{x,1.2},{y,2.3},WorkingPrecision->16]

f1 and f2 can be huge polynomials.
The computer tells me that the method doesn't converge.
So I increase the WorkingPrecision to 32, but it still doesn't
converge. How far can I go? Do I have to increase the Max Steps ?

Thanks
