Hold problems with FindRoot

Hello all,

I have problems getting FindRoot to evaluate the equations it evaluates, 
despite using Evaluate on the equations. I have a rather complex 
function f[x,y] that works correctly with individual values x and y. 
Evaluating the following expression does not work however.

FindRoot[Evaluate[f[x,y]==0],{{x,1},{y,1}}]

When evaluating, I get similar errors as when I evaluate f without 
inserting values for x and y. I can also do a Plot3D on f without using 
Evaluate.

Does anybody have an idea what the problem is?

Jonas
