Turn the car motor. Turn on the headlights. Try the window in question. did the lights dim? If so then the wiring and the motor are probably working and the gearing or track is to blame. It they didn't dim then the motor or electrical system is to blame. Go from there.

Dismantle the door and locate the motor unit. Does anything look broken / fried and could you take it out and replace it if you had to? L

Mmmmmmaybe the window didn't work because the battery was in poor condition? This thing is sounding more and more like a heap.... L

It should look like a motor connected to something with wires and connected to the window with mechanical linkages. If you're not happy taking your car apart take it to a garage.
I don't know everything, but I know how to start on a lot of things...
