I can think of two things.

Keyboard set for American English and not UK English (no exclamation mark, but something else?).

Sticky key or dodgy internal contact (If so, contact Medion or the retailer, especially if under warranty).

As spuds said, if the key just doesn't produce anything at all, then it's probably a faulty switch.

How old is the keyboard? They don't last forever, and (assuming it's not a laptop) they're very cheap. Youmight find it easiest just to get a new one.

If pro tem you need to get a number 1 - then use the (normally blue) function key, and the quasi-numeric pad key.

and for an exclamation, if you're really stuck - use the Alt key + 0033 on the numeric pad viz : !

And for a one - in the same way lt + 0049 viz 1
