You say windows - are they all stuck down? that would sound like a power problem before current ever gets to the windows, maybe a switch assembly problem, fuse, or wiring short. If it is just one window, my tech diagnosed the problem by turning on the ignition key and pressing the window switch. (If the switch is good, there will be a solenoid type clunk or click from the door, indicating power is making it as far as the door).
My switch was good, so he held the switch in the "raise window" position while he had me rapidly close the door with the offending window. (didn't quite slam the door, but pushed it closed more rapidly than normal). After a couple of tries, the window started working again! He said that it indicated a short in a wire, or a flat spot in the motor. Hope this helps - winter is a bad time for a stuck down window!
