why is my driver side window not working? It won't go up or down? on 1997 Geo Prizm

I have a 2000 prizm, which I love, however the driver side window stopped working, What would cause this? it used to go up or down slowly and I could get it back up when I first started the car but now would work at all and is about 1 1/2 down. before i take it in for reason/price, does any one know what would cause this? thanks

Lift motor is most likely your problem. Regulator next. Followed by switch. Will need a mech. to check it.
