If the battery ran low, or it got cold enough the vehicle wouldn't start, its a problem with the voltage. I have had this happen 3 times now, and each time, i just let the vehicle run for awhile (took several hours total), but it always started working after that. I haven't tried hooking it up to a battery charger, but that always worked for me, not replacing the switch or motor, just letting it run.
At this time though, I could open the all 3 other windows (passenger side front and rear, and the drivers side back window) just fine from the drivers side, just the power locks and drivers side window wouldn't work.

Re: Driverside powerwindow quit working
You can try rock window switch Up and Down really fast to see if it moves, also you can pound on the lower interior door panel while holding switch. If it works the first way you have a bad switch or bad connection, If it works the other way you have a bad window motor.

Try spraying well with silicone spray down sides where window runs in felt tracks. You may have to pull panel and spray grease on track inside door too, but see if that helps first. Work it up and down if you can and give 2 or 3 good rounds of spray, especially lower and get it to run down below door panel wiper.
Power windows work either by direct gears or through a cable attached to the motor. In most instances the cable brakes and you may have to by a complete unit. check with a spares department an decide on either a new one or one from the wreckers
remove the power window switch and run a jumper wire to the TAN wire ground to the BLACK wire then if the switch is working roll the window up if the problem is the switch then jump power to the light/blue wire and ground to the white wire to roll up the driverside window , switch them to roll window down, power to brown/white and ground to violit and the passangerside window will roll up, switch them to roll it down.
Does you window roll up and or down using a different window control than the one you are using now? If it does then replace the broken control panel that is malfunctioning. You also have a fuse in the panel under the dash on the drivers side that controls the windows. Check that as well. If these do not remedy the problem then you will have to remove the door panel where the malfunctioning window is at and inspect the regulator/motor. One of these three will be the solution.
The window motor probably quit working. Try banging on the inside of the door near the bottom, at the same time holding the switch to raise the window. Sometimes this will give the motor one more chance at raising the window.
