st: fixed effects estimation with unbalanced panel

I'm having an issue with fixed effects estimation of an unbalanced panel.
Due to various issues, mostly related to the smallness of my dataset, when
I run fixed effects including the year dummies and cluster robust standard
errors, STATA won't calculate the F statistic for the model. If I remove
the year dummies or I run the regression without cluster-robust SE it
works, but then I'm losing important parts of the model. The year dummies
are jointly significant, so I don't want to remove them, but I also need
cluster robust standard errors to control for heteroskedasticity and serial
correlation that I have in my data. Any suggestions on how I should handle
this? Is there a way around this problem, or do I have to choose between
year dummies and cluster-robustness?
