Windows will not stay up and springs coming out

We have a ranch style house built in 2002. When we lift the window, the springs in the side do not move with the window and causes the window to not stay open. If you move the springs into the window while it is open, the window stays open but when closing the window, the springs stay up.

Do I need to have the whole window replaced or is there a fix for this?

Thanks for your help.

Most likely...this is fixable. Might need new parts from the manufacturer (or another source)......or maybe no new parts at all. Something might simply be disengaged. Impossible to say without more info as there are numerous different window spring systems out there. Some pics of the windows and the problem situation might be helpful.
