BSOD every time I try to run Docker toolbox on Windows 7

I installed Docker Toolbox and had all sorts of problems, first with environment variables (added them manually), then with the virtualization (enabled it on BIOS). When I was finally able to complete the installation and try to run the Docker Quickstart Terminal, it crashes every single time, sometimes right away, sometimes a minute or 2 later. The screen goes snowy and flickers and then I get the BSOD. It asks me to make sure I have enough disk space and mentioned the ntfs.sys file before it restarts.
I have 4 GB RAM, 235 GB free on the HD, and it’s an AMD A6-3420 1.5 GHz running Windows 7 Home Edition.

The event viewer shows:
The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
Event ID: 41
Level: Critical
User: System

Pasting more details below.

Is there anything I can try or is my laptop just too old to run Docker?

Thanks in advance!
