Ping simply can be disabled on the mgmt interface on PA as well as your PC software firewall could block any incoming ICMP requests. Do you have ARP entry in PA ARP table of your PC ip address? If yes, did you try to access PA mgmt interface ip address over the https from your PC? If not, then double check VLAN tagging on the switch ports.
