Have you configured SQL Server's maximum memory setting? If so, what have you set it to?

memory is in its default setting to (2147483.647) GB

Set it to a lower value - say, 12GB (12288MB) - and see if that helps.

When it reaches 90% and stops working, what do you see? Any error messages?

I don't see any error messages but my application cannot connect to SQL and throws timeout
