Question: How to repair power windows

Car only has 24,000 original miles. Both front window do not operate properly; Driver side does not stay in track. Passenger side only goes down and up 6". Is this common? Will I need to replace tracks, or will I be able to repair with existing parts? How much do new tracks and attachment devices cost if I have to replace them?
