BD, AACS, HDCP...

I have just received BD movie I ordered from US (Region A). But when I checked does the Blu-Ray disc even work, VLC Media Player gives this:
This Blu-Ray Disc needs a library for AACS decoding, and your system does not have it.
Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'bluray:///F:/'. Check the log for details.
I have read something about BD and AACS. What I have understood is computer needs keys to encode AACS protection and those keys need be updated. How do I do it? Disc is region coded, A. I live in Finland and laptop has been bought in there (BD region B). Laptop's statistics:
HP Pavilion dv7
hp BDDVDRW CT2iL ATA Device (BD drive)
64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium
Question about HDCP: what computer & peripheral parts need be HDCP compatible/certified in order to view video in maximum resolution? Monitor obviously, but anything else, like BD drive and graphic adapter?
