You will need to increment the count variable as its currently set at 0. At your programs current state it will loop infinitely which is why it caused a time out "Too Long to Run". I've posted a solution below so you can compare your code to mine and see where you went wrong. Hope this helps :)

Solution:

// Define Count Variable //
var count = 0;

// Loop Through 26 Results //
while ( count < 26 ) {

    // Count Variable at Current State //
  document.write(count + "\n");

  // Increment count //
  count++;

}
