HP5304 intervlan routing HELP 500 POINTS

I have defined 3 vlans on an HP5304 and want to route between these vlans
The three vlans are
vlan2 160.213.X.X  and

I have a host on vlan2 with a 160.213.X.X address plugged into a vlan2 port which for some reason is unable to contact another host in the same vlan2 on a 10.41.2.X address???

Can someone point me in the right direction as to why this doesn't work & also have I done enough to configure inter vlan routing between these VLANS ?

I have included the routing table of the switch as well as the switch config. This was configured my my predecessor so I was unfamiliar with the initial setup

Switch Config

HP ProCurve Switch 5304XL# sho ip route

by the way I would suggest:
NO snmp-server community "public" Unrestricted
I have not played with multinetting myself, so the following is from speculating how ARP request migt work in a multinetted VLAN2 like yours.
Do you have any 160.213.w.Y-PC working like you want it to?
If so , find out how it is confgd. and change the non-working in that direction;
to see config:
1) at DOS prompt: ipconfig /all
2) at DOS prompt: PRINT ROUTE
-from IPCONFIG, how is DefaultGateWay?
-in the route table, is the network mentioned ?

If no inspiration is to get here, I would try changing routing info on involved PC's:
on the 160.213.71.X-PC with mask and defaultGW:160.213.71.Z [=IP-adr on sw.'vlan2]
ROUTE -P ADD MASK 160.213.71.X [use this netcard to access directly]

on the 10.41.2.q-PC with mask and defaultGW:
ROUTE -P ADD MASK 10.41.2.q [use this netcard to access]

hope this is to some help
