Thanks! issue resolved.

>> Restored the backup of the Master database.
>> Found that they have restored the master of some other instance and hence it was not able to find the database files in the location where it is supposed to be.
>> Requested to get back the original master files.
>> Then opened a command prompt and started the SQL Server in minimal configuration using -f.
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Binn>sqlservr -f
>> Connected from another command prompt using osql.
OSQL -S Machine Name -E
>> Ran the following command.
sp_configure 'Max Server Memory', 3078
Reconfigure with override
